Two Switch objects

Post by velaro on Wed Aug 17, 2011 10:08 pm

Unfortunately, Rüdiger Hülsmann's Switch 1.5 utility ( http://www.ruedes-bve-seite.de/ ) refuses to work on my computer running Windows 7. Suggestions on how to solve this problem would be welcome, but if that's not possible, could someone please generate the two objects I need and email them to me? I need:

1. a curve, radius -1318 m, turned on its own angle: yes, overhead line: no
2. a switch, left rail offset -0.95 m, right rail offset +0.95m, direction of travel left, guard rails: yes, overhead line: no

check your PMs - there's a link to the items.

Is there any scope to use the "compatibility" feature? I'm only guessing, as I haven't much idea about windows myself. Derryck might know.

Switch is a DOS program and these don't work on 7 unofrtunately... this was the reason for coding RailGen. Smile

Is there no interpreter for Win7 to permit use of DOS programs?
If not, then Win7 is a right pile of shite! Down with Microsoft.

I do have a 64-bit version of Windows 7, but I got the tool to work after all - downloaded the DOS emulator DosBOX and ran the program in there. Thanks everyone! Very Happy
